Otto Frederick Rohwedder

Otto Frederick Rohwedder of Iowa, USA invented the first automatic bread-slicing machine. The so-called father of sliced bread realised around 1912 that if he was to develop a successful machine for automatically slicing bread it would need to prevent the bread the bread from going stale. His initial prototype designs held the bread firmly together with hat pins[?] and was unsuccessful. In 1927 he designed a machine that not only sliced the bread but also wrapped it. The first machine was installed in Battle Creek, Michigan in 1928.
